And this is How to Teach Writing in Science Class

I used to do a project with my 9th grade English students where they’d rap literary critiques of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.  The idea to meld rap and teaching classroom academics felt original to me at the time (though it hardly was) after hearing this now-classic Blackalicious track called Chemistry Calisthenics.  Just listen and learn.  Then re-listen and re-learn.

Complement the listening with reading up on Dr. Chris Emdin’s work in a similar, yet bigger, vein.
